A really nice place. The people from the staff were always kind and helpful. I'd definitely recommend it if you are planning to go to the Tayrona Park.

Very clean hostel. Beautiful pool. Close to the supermarket, also has a restaurant and bar on site. Close to the bus stop for Palomino and Parque Tayrona (10 min to Neguaje entrance) their new internet system is fast and reliable, A short taxi ride (2 $) into town or Taganga for continued partying. Nice day trips every morning to nearby beaches.

Great hostel, amazing staff, close walk to supermarket / cinema etc. Food is good, though on the pricey side. Great pool, lots of common areas to chill out, good kitchen, lots of hammocks and trees. Plenty of help booking tours and organising things. The private room was huge, fan kept it cool. Only areas for improvement - wi-fi was patchy and they really should get a water filter for people to refill bottles. Also note - it's not in the middle of Santa Marta - a short cab ride from town.

Yeah, there is nothing to really complain about at this place.

Was a bit skeptical about the hostel to begin with that it would be just really party and quite dirty - but actually absolutely incredible! Ticked all the boxes - great common area, places to relax, open kitchen - feels like a laid back retreat. But the best thing, as in everyones reviews really was the staff!!! Diego and Tony went out there way all the time for us and were just so friendly. Really made the trip, and kept using the dreamer as our hub when bouncing back between Minca, Tyrona, etc

Definitely the best facilities, personal space in the dorms, cleanliness and staff we have experienced on our trip. Had an issue having to pay twice for a couple of beers, so keep your receipt if you pay the night before you leave!

A good hostel with nice clean rooms. The bar and the food are great. However, the hostel is very far from the center of Santa Marta!

Staff are awesome, we arrived and there was 9 people to check in and they did it faster than most hostels do 1. Well laid out hostel with the pool in the middle of the rooms and the kitchen and movie area upstairs over looking everything. Easy to meet people, activities organized everyday and close to the big shopping centre.

The hostel is beautiful, the people that work there is eager to help and provide information of the place and reservation. I highly recommend the place if you are planning a trip to Santa Marta!

Brilliant place to use a base for the park and other places close to Santa Marta. The staff are all amazing and the restaurant and bar mean there are always people around. The rooms are basic but have everything you need and many have aircon. The staff organise activities which gets people together and there are plenty of places to relax. It's a really great hostel and would definitely recommend! One thing I would say is to keep note of what you have at the bar/restaurant!

Excellent hostel.. The staff is the best I've ever met.. Great place, a bit far out of town but that's fine since there's really not much to see in Santa Marta town, it's more about the surrandings and the all the buses pass really close to the hostel

Absolutely fantastic hostel with great facilities. What made it one of the best though was the most amazing staff. Also great location to bus stop and supermarket.

Stayed here 3 years ago while doing my dive course and absolutely loved it so brought my girlfriend here for 4 nights and ended up staying 10. By far the best hostel we have stayed in. Staff greet and introduce on arrival they are really, friendly plus they will help you organize day trips. Restaurant does awesome cheap food but there is also a kitchen if you want to cook. There is a cool bar and do the chiva (party bus) on fridays. Place is always clean! More like a mini resort than hostel!!

Great facilities. Attracts a younger crowd. Friday nights in dorms might get a bit noisy as a lot of people come back drunk from the chiva bus party, which is fine if you're one of those people. I didn't like the location because it's too far from the lovely center of Santa Marta. No bars, restaurants or nice plazas near the hostel. It's near a busy traffic area (street is quiet though).

Really enjoyed our stay at Dreamers- it was a good base to do lots of activities from, ie. ciudad perdida and parque tayrona. The staff were the best we have encountered so far and were super helpful and friendly, especially Diego! Nice bar area and pool table for socialising. Location is quite far out of Santa Marta but close to a supermarket/mall and to bus stops. Would also highly recommend their hostel at palomino, beautiful situation!
